As the industry moves to a defining factor of autonomous, connected, and electrified vehicles where does that take us towards protection?
Over the past decade the automobile business has undergone a significant amount of change. Electric cars, are replacing the tradition internal combustion engines and soon drivers will eventually be passengers in autonomous vehicles (AVs). The automotive industry is expected to continue this trend of change and advancement. In the coming years, sales for electric vehicles (EV) will skyrocket and AVs will become more mainstream. With these changes, new problems and issues will also arise that must be addressed by the industry. One potential issue is the increased amount of heat energy by EVs and AVs. Protective coatings like ceramic coatings have the ability to protect against this heat energy, making them a key player in the automotive industry's future. The market for these protective coatings will also grow as the need for protection against corrosion and wear increases.
Ceramic coatings are already being used on a variety of surfaces including metal, glass, and plastic. They are durable, tough, and can withstand high temperatures. These protective coatings can also protect against UV rays, corrosion, and wear. However it is more than just protecting paint. Heat resistant ceramic coatings can be applied to the dashboard and other areas of the car's interior to protect from the sun's heat and prevent damage or fading of the material.
Also protective coatings can be used on wheels and tires. Protecting against brake dust, road debris, and corrosion.
As the automotive industry continues to change, so too will the coatings that are used on vehicles. New technologies and innovations will provide coatings with even more performance capabilities than they have today. It is an exciting time for the automotive coating industry
Nano-ceramic window tints are used to keep your car's interior from deteriorating and fading by blocking out harmful sun light. Nano-ceramic tints provides sun protection while still allowing you to see clearly.
Reducing sun rays and the cabin temperature of an EV is a major problem because most of these vehicles have large windows installed on the roof and all around the vehicle for maximum visibility. This increases the amount of heat that can enter your car through non-protected windows. As a result, this raises the interior cabin temperature, which automatically activates your air conditioner, which is designed as a safety mechanism and draws on your battery.
The technology in the nano-carbon ceramic efficiently absorbs UV radiation and heat. The amount of heat blocking by heat window tinting varies from vehicle to vehicle, but it may reduce heating by as much as 45%. Even on the hottest of days
To make the case for EVs and hybrids more compelling to consumers, electric car makers are focused on range and battery efficiency. By installing ceramic window film on all major windows, you are keeping the inside of the vehicle cooler for longer periods and reduces the amount of time to run the AC system, improving battery efficiency.
The engines of these machines will need new coatings, adhesives, and sealants to protect them from corrosion. Dielectric coatings provide protection against electrical resistance and thermal conductivity due to wear and tear over time. Under the hood of these machines are yards of wires and cables that will need protection.
The automotive protection market is ripe for innovation and entrepreneurship, as it has been for decades. The potential to leverage specialized coating technologies for exclusive automobiles should excite up-and-coming vehicle wrapping providers in the field. Alset Auto is one such firm that is leading the way. By catering to Tesla owners' and enthusiasts' to bring their clients a creative, unconventional approach to Tesla aftercare. their motto is clear on display on the Alset Auto website: We don't protect cars we protect Teslas.
Concepts are evolving very rapidly, with new groups within the automotive protection industry trying to understand what they need to create brand recognition and value in the future as the industry moves to a defining factor of autonomous, connected, and electrified vehicles.
